I've been experiencing Pain in my inner thigh? Which nerve could be sending the pain? What type of treatment do I need? It comes and goes.

Need examination: Can't be sure that it's a nerve in the thigh itself though that certainly is a good bet. Could also be a nerve root being squeezed in the lower back which can send signals in a trajectory to the inner thigh or maybe it's BONE pain & not on or under the skin. Maybe it's muscle pain.

Hives: Hives can be caused by a variety of different things. Certainly pressure on the skin, tight clothing/waistbands, and heat can all cause hives to flare, especially in people who have a tendency to get hives. If no trouble breathing, no wheeze, no cough, no throat swelling, and no other signs of severe allergy, I wouldn't worry. You can try antihistamine for relief. Read more

Other diagnosis?: With proper treatment, fungal infection will not linger for 3.5yrs. If it is indeed fungal, does it clear and return? If so, tests are needed to ensure there is no major underlying reason.
